Astrantia 'Buckland'

Plant details

Buckland' is a highly attractive perennial with a burst of fresh green leaves followed by green and pink flowers on wiry stems. It makes a decent clump, spreading by underground runners and, after flowering, can be cut right back to produce a second flush of foliage and flowers. Like other astrantias, it likes rich soil in dappled shade, even in moist ground. Staking isn't necessary. Excellent in cottage gardens.
